The fishing this week has been good for numbers of good slot fish. The bass are starting to school and when they come up they will hit just about anything that looks like a shad. . The best bait for me to catch these schooling bass has been a oz Chrome and Blue Rat-L-trap, when they come up you can almost catch them on every cast. Most of the schooling activity I have seen has been on the main lake and around the SRA point at the dam and the bridges, 515 east and west; also the 154 bridge has been good. When these bass go down I am using a Salt &Pepper Grub on a oz. jig head to catch the bass that are suspended. When the schooling action slows down I have been changing to a Carolina Rig. I am using a 1oz weight and a four-foot leader 15lb line on a 7ft med heavy lake fork pro series rod. Best baits for me on the Carolina Rig have been a Watermelon Seed Centipede and a Watermelon Seed Fluke, water depth 15 to 25 feet we have been catching 30 to 35 bass a day. The weather has been hot but the fishing has been good and not many boats on the lake so you just about have the lake to yourself and that is nice. If you would like to book a guide trip you can call me at 903-629-7699 or 903-629-5085

Good Fishing
